30: Slowing Down to Find Inspired Action

I know month of December is usually C-R-A-Z-Y for most, but clearly we’re all numb to crazy – thank you 2020! I know it’s been said that life is a marathon, not a sprint, and this year has taught us just THAT!!

IF you didn’t get the message that 2020 was sending, here’s a quick recap:

1. SLOOOOOOOW Down!  Be in the moment.  Look the person you’re talking to in the eyes (or zoom as it has been this year). 

2. Your Health MATTERS!!!  This is a principle that I ALWAYS include in my business coaching because if you’re not healthy, you’re not able to serve your clients at the highest level.

3. INSPIRED Action VS Action out of Responsibility . . . As some of you know, I took the past month off from showing up on social media specifically.  This was the lesson I learned.  Let me explain . . . as  a marathon runner, you commit to a goal which requires disciplined and responsible action.  There are some mornings that you do not want to run and those runs can sometimes turn out good.  BUT – when I’m truly inspired to run, those are my best runs – ease and fun.  The same is true with life.  If you’re going through life taking action solely out of responsibility, take a pause and ask yourself why and how can you change that.

I hope these tips are helpful and with our 12 Doors to 2021, you can find more tips and resources on today’s The eXperiment Podcast.

About the Podcast

The eXperiment Podcast
Real Talk with Laura Doughty
Hey Y'all!! The eXperiment podcast is just that – an experiment. My whole life I’ve felt like people try to put you in a box. I’m sooooo an outside the box person, who oddly relishes her rituals in life. But, my previous podcast was more about stories of living excellence in your daily life. A bit too woo woo for even me, if I’m honest. This eXperiment podcast is about life and business. Yes, it will cover REAL ESTATE because real estate affects all of our lives each and every day. We have to have shelter. It will also cover WELLNESS because if you don’t have your health, it don’t matter where you live. And it will cover ENTREPRENEURSHIP – because we truly are the backbone of this country. It takes so much courage and aversion to risk to step out and create a platform that doesn’t currently exist – hope and pray that someone will believe in you and invest in what you’re doing.

This culture is thankfully coming out of it’s fog that it’s been living in for too long. We chased the Kardashian life – hmmm, that’s interesting, this is their last season. Don’t think that’s coincidental. Bottom line, it’s about sharing the truth of the journey that it takes to get up every day and support yourself as an entrepreneur. What I know that I know is ALL of us have a dream and a vision for our life and sometimes you just need to hear from someone that you don’t know that you have permission to step out of the box that society has created that isn’t real and doesn’t work. So, the journey, the wins and the falling downs WILL be exposed on this podcast. By me and by the people who honor me with their time and allow me to interview them. www.theexperimentpodcast.com Can't wait to get to know you!! Laura www.lauradoughty.com
